Who can resist the Almighty arm that




Who can resist thí Almighty arm
that made the starry sky?
Or who elude the certain glance
of Godís all-seeing eye?


From him no covíring vails our crimes;
hell opens to his sight;
And all Destructionís secret snares
lie full disclosed in light.


Firm on the boundless void of space
he poised the steady pole,
And in the circle of his clouds
bade secret waters roll.


While natureís universal frame
its Makerís power reveals,
His throne, remote from mortal eyes
an awful cloud conceals.


From where the rising day ascends,
to where it sets in night,
He compasses the floods with bounds,
and checks their threatíning might.


The pillars that support the sky
tremble at his rebuke;
Through all its caverns quakes the earth,
as though its centre shook.


He brings the waters from their beds,
although no tempest blows,
And smites the kingdom of the proud
without the hand of foes.


With bright inhabitants above
he fills the heavenly land,
And all the crooked serpentís breed
dismayed before him stand.


Few of his works can we survey;
these few our skill transcend:
But the full thunder of his powír
what heart can comprehend?
